About Camels & Kitesurfers – Memories of Essaouira.

•••
“I really admire how you can walk in heels on these streets”, I say to Isabelle while I try to catch up to her on the crumbling sidewalks of Essaouira. Isabelle is the owner of La Maison des Artistes, the riad I am staying at, and is wearing chic Chloé pumps while I am in Havaianas. She turns to me with a somewhat confused look, “Excuse me, I'm from P[...]

Why I love to travel with the girls

•••
They say your friends are the family you choose and if that’s the case, I’m more than happy to take all the credit for the family I’ve built around me and in particular, the girls I've welcomed into my life. My female friendships have always held a special place in my heart. Good girlfriends will see us at our best and worst, will laugh and cry with us[...]

A brief guide to the suburbs of Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is arguably, and most rightly so, one of the top most liveable cities in the world! I lived there for nearly three years and it is definitely a place that stole my heart - I'll always think about it with affection and hope of returning. One of the many reasons why I love it is that it is so diverse with a multitude of suburbs that would suit any ch[...]

My love affair with the world - Tales of three cities.

•••
As Caroline showed with her love letter to London, clearly the idea of being in a love with a city like you would be in love with a person is not an unknown concept. I too, have at least in my mind written love letters to or thrown plates at cities at one point or another. If you look at my track record I am not quite promiscuous, but I am definitely not mar[...]

All Love is Equal - romance around the world

•••
Valentines month may be nearly over but romance certainly ain’t dead in these beautiful and unique shots depicting idealized love around the globe. New York based photographer Braden Summers spent six weeks travelling the world in order to recreate the images of romantic perfection we are bombarded with constantly in mainstream media, only this time using [...]

Kesh Angels - the biker girls of Morocco

•••
The motorcycle – a symbol of freedom, adventure and youth ever since the 50s spawned those early rebels without a cause and Ted Simon hit the road to pen Jupiter's Travels. But so often in pop culture do women seem relegated to perching prettily on the back of the bike despite the fact that all around the world I’ve witnessed ladies fearlessly manning th[...]

The Horror Hostel Tales

•••
The day of Halloween is finally upon us; the time for creepy stories around a fire, the day for scary costumes, the night for trick or treating neighbours. I love this time of year as it’s an excuse to dress up, ask strangers for sweets and generally have a fear-full time! And what better way to celebrate this holiday than a good ole horror story? I’m s[...]

12 things you must do before summer's over

•••
With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities. Don’t let that happen and don’t resi[...]

Why We Love @MissUnderground

•••
You never forget your first time. Your first time on the London Underground. Rude at rush hour, rowdy at night, reliably grumpy in the morning, using "The Tube" to navigate your way across London as either a resident or a visitor is a rite of passage. It's one of the things I love to miss now that I no longer live in London. Of course, when I actua[...]

How to make authentic tasty Vietnamese Pho

•••
Pho is a traditional Vietnamese dish that can be found all over Vietnam. Super cheap, authentic, fresh, healthy, everything you could ever want while backpacking! Coming from Melbourne and its fantastically diverse cuisine, I had tried the traditional noodle soup dish in the Vietnamese suburb of Richmond. I thought it was pretty good… but going to Vietnam [...]
